Isn't it strange the way things can change
Life that you lead, turned on its head
Suddenly someone means more than you felt for
House in its yard, turns into home
I'm sorry but I meant to say
Many things along the way,
This ones for you

Have I told you I ache,
Have I told you I ache,
Have I told you I ache for you (x2)

The time that it took writing words for my book,
Seems to have broken off
The gate that I shot last time I got hurt
Seems to have opened itself
Oh what its spinning now,
Its tryna catch me up
Tell me to appreciate here and now
I'm sorry but I meant to say
Many things along the way,
This ones for you

Have I told you I ache,
Have I told you I ache,
Have I told you I ache for you (x2)

    General CommentWoow, this is really a beautiful song! it really adds up to the scene in Smallville.

    Isn't this about a guy who realizes that he has feelings for someone??

    General CommentThis song means so much to me. Two of my greatest friends (and my brothers best friends) got in a car accident. Mike was rushed off to the hospital and Dustin (RIP) (this doesn't seem real) did not make it. Both of them only 22 years old. One of the guys made a slide show and this song is playing in the background. All I can say is wow, could this song fit anymore? Isn't it strange, the way things can change? The life that you lead, turned on its head...... I will forever remember you Dustin Plummer. RIP. You are in paradise right now, tell everyone "Aloha" for us.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. You can just hear how much he cares for the person he's singing it to. Anyway, I think it is pretty self explanatory. The relationship he is in is not working out so well and he finally realizes how much this person means to him. He is basically apologizing for all the things he didn't say to her because he just now understood how much he needs her.

    General CommentI feel this song so much right now. I'll never tell you that I (still) ache for you. I needed you to tell me I did the right thing, but you never will. I'll probably never see you again. I wish I could have at least said goodbye in person, but if you somehow see this, I didn't lie. I'm still in love with you.
    Have I told you i ache, Have i told you i ache, have i told you i ache, for you...
